    Yeah, that's why we want the narrowest, all seasons, we can find. If we need to buy new rims so be it. Just want good stable tracking on any road condition. We spend about half our miles towing. So far we've just become used to the wander - we don't think it's dangerous. But when we get new tires we definitely will not get the same ones it came with.

    thanks for your replies..

    2) Climate control is non-existent. Inside temperature has a huge range, we've seen +/- 10 degrees when set on auto
    3) Can't back up with driver door open. Kills me when I just want to back up a foot or two.
    4) Uconnect texting does not work. Android auto very hit and miss. Terrible s/w.
    5) 6 times now we've started the engine and it runs very rough, like on 1 cylinder. We immediately kill it and it restarts fine. Doesn't leave a code so dealer can't debug it.

    That said, it is way better for towing than our '14 RT was. Feels more sure at higher speeds. Just hoping we can find some less grabby tires when these wear out. Message me with any recommendations please..
    For your climate control, make sure you have the rear on “auto”and not being separately controlled. My SRT is now 16 months old and I have found climate control is super reliable and spot on. Very consistent and an adjustment of 2 degrees up or down is noticeable. I’d have your dealer take a look.

    The “no ability to back up with a door open” is not a ddsrt issue. My 16 RT has that problem after they were all brought in for a software re-flash last year. After someone got pinned down or run over by the truck (Cherokee I think) on an incline. I hate it though.

    I read it here someplace; just put vehicle in gear first, then open door.

    Did you try it with your seat belt on / engaged?

    I understand the increased towing capability is what reeled you in but, I'm pretty sure that's not the reason the 392 was dropped into the Durango. The SRT was designed for high performance driving. Many of us will never get to push it to its potential but if we got the opportunity to, it would handle/perform as designed.
    I've experienced what you described on some bad roads. How often are you on those roads? Are you absolutely certain a narrower tire will be safer?
